Describe an inspection that you are particularly proud of: (Specifics on mold issue, Client relationship, What was rewarding about it)
I have done a lot of home inspections the past 10 years and the ones that stand out to me give me further insight and motivation. There was an inspection I did where I was brought out to do the job on a Real Estate transaction. The client was worried and upset that she would have to spend thousands of dollars just to remediate. I did the testing and it did turn out to be a widespread mold infestation. I sent the reports and included the cleanup process and ended up saving her thousands of dollars. She hugged me and was in tears when she thanked me. It was very rewarding just by simply doing my job.

Mold Inspection & Testing Elgin Illinois
In terms of noticing things out of the ordinary within a property, here are some examples of common things that we come across. Excess moisture/humidity, visible mold growth, strange smells, stains on walls, and recent water damage often trigger people to give us a call and evaluate a property with a mold inspection Elgin. Coming to us prior to contacting a restoration company is the best step to take.
Mold is naturally occurring all around us. Every home and business has mold spores throughout their indoor environment as it makes its way in through outside. However, these species of fungus is of the non-toxic variety and when a Elgin mold test is performed it should be seen at low levels. We take an outside air sample from your area to see what is normal and compare it to an inside sample and see if elevated conditions exist or not.
Our Elgin mold inspector will also do a full visual of the property with tools like a moisture meter to identify any possible red flag areas like visible growth or walls holding excess moisture. If they do find anything they will recommend additional air and/or surface samples to both confirm a source of a problem and/or see how far it has spread. Those customers that do have elevated conditions, will be provided with a detailed protocol for removal so they can get their property returned to normal.
